Really ready to conquer the next challenge

I have had a goal all along to complete a half marathon in late 2011/early 2012.  In the last few weeks, that goal has changed quite a bit.  Sarah and I have officially decided to make the Run for the Warriors in Jacksonville, NC our first half marathon.  I am so excited!  I am slightly concerned with the date (May 14), as Jason and I will be on a cruise/at Disney World from May 5 through 12.  Oh well, I am gonna do it.

I think that I am finally really ready to conquer a half marathon, mentally and physically.  It was a lofty goal when I mentioned it on my Facebook last May.  It was unrealistic, in my mind, when I started the NCRC running program in July.  I wasn't in any mental or physical shape to work toward such a goal several months ago.  Now, after seeing just how far I have come, I am ready.  I am ready to look this challenge in the face and defeat it


  1. That's amazing! Good for you!! Isn't it something, how we can progress towards these goals. I'm not mentally there yet for a half, but I'm thinking about it for September. Way to Go!

  2. I think y'all will be ok with the Disney Cruise then running a Half. I did it in October for the WDW Wine and Dine Half and I was fine! We got off the boat on Thursday and the race was on Saturday. I did get sick on the boat (very cruddy, cold...ugh) but I think it's because I left all my vitamins at home by accident. Just wash your hands a lot and you should be fine! :0) Y'all are going to do AWESOME!!!
